Uno's Garden by Graeme Base

This is another gorgeously illustrated book by this talented author for slightly older children (4 years +). The primary focus of the book is on conservation of the environment. The more building you have the fewer plants and animals can live there. The story follows Uno as he decides to live in the forest without fully appreciating what may happen if more people follow him there. The book even deals with the extinction of animal species; in this case the snortlepig, who becomes more difficult to find as the book progresses. It's a great book that teaches children an important lesson about the environment (and math). Where to Buy: As with all of Graeme Base's books you can find Uno's Garden in most children's bookstores or through online retailers.
